Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly assessing his options for next season as he does not feel he fits in the aggressive press-from-the-front system expected to be implemented by incoming manager Erik ten Hag.
The 37-year-old showed he is still more than capable of contributing at the highest level in 2021-22, scoring 18 goals in 30 Premier League appearances and six in seven in the UEFA Champions League.
With one year remaining on his contract, the Portugal icon would demand a fee, but there are reportedly some familiar faces interested in acquiring his services.
Jose Mourinho is reportedly asking if it is possible to bring Ronaldo to Rome, with the Italian club hoping the famed coach could remove the needle and convince him to return to Serie A, according to La Repubblica.
Mourinho will reportedly have to compete with the nostalgia factor as Sporting CP once again threw his hat into the ring, with the thought that Ronaldo might want to end his career where he started for the Premierira Liga club he called home before being taken over by United in 2003.
If the five-time Ballon d’Or winner really decides that his time with United is over, as reported by an Italian store, there will no doubt be a list of players willing to bring in one of the best-selling stars in the game.
